 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The term "resistance distance" for electric circuits was in use years before it was proved to be a metric (on edges of graphs). The historical meaning has been described thus: "one imagines unit resistors on each edge of a graph G and takes the resistance distance between vertices i and j of G to be the effective resistance between vertices i and j..."  (from Klein, 2002; see the References). Let R(k,n) denote the resistance distance for k resistors in an n-dimensional cube (for details, see Example and References). Then R(k,n)=A212045(k,n)/A212046(k,n).  Moreover, A212045(1,n)=A090633(n), A212045(n,n)=A046878(n), A212046(1,n)=A090634(n), A212046(n,n)=A046879(n). REFERENCES F. Nedemeyer and Y.

Wikipedia, Resistance distance FORMULA A212045(n)/A212046(n) is the rational number R(k, n) = [(k-1)*R(k-2,n)-n*R(k-1,n)+2^(1-n)]/(k-n-1), for n>=1, k>=1. EXAMPLE First six rows of A212045/A212046: 1 3/4 .... 1 7/12 ... 3/4 .... 5/6 15/32 .. 7/12 ... 61/96 ... 2/3 31/80 .. 15/32 .. 241/480 . 25/48 ... 8/15 21/64 .. 31/80 .. 131/320 . 101/240 . 137/320 . 13/30 The resistance distances for n=3 (the ordinary cube) are 7/12, 3/4, and 5/6, so that row 3 of the triangle of numerators is (7, 3, 5).  For the corresponding electric circuit, suppose X is a vertex of the cube.  The resistance across any one of the 3 edges from X is 7/12 ohm; the resistance across any two adjoined edges (i.e., a diagonal of a face of the cubes) is 3/4 ohm; the resistance across and three adjoined edges (a diagonal of the cube) is 5/6 ohm.
